Lazy Sunday Crockpot Chili!
It's been raining all night and day and it's the perfect weather for a hot bowl of chili with some cornbread.
This is how I make my Turkey Chili.....
Lazy Sunday Crockpot Chili
A couple of you have commented on my crockpot because I use the base on the stovetop....yes, that's what I'm doing and no you're not imagining it. I have a Crock-Pot Versaware Pro which I LOVE.
One of the main features is that the base can be used to brown meat on the stove top, it can also be used in the oven, in the refrigerator etc. It's wonderful and really cuts down on dishes when you have those crockpot recipes that call for the meat to be browned before hand.
Now for the recipe:
In a skillet, or the base of the crockpot, brown 1 pound of ground turkey in olive oil with 1 cup chopped onion and some crushed garlic or garlic powder.
Season with oregano, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 2 teaspoons (mild) curry powder and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Cook for a few minutes until well blended.
Here's my curry powder, I have it sent in from South Africa.
Add one can diced tomatoes, one 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, and 2 teaspoons of sugar.
Mix everything together and then transfer to a crockpot OR if yours is like mine, just transfer the base to the crockpot, add two cans of red kidney beans.
Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, spoon into bowls and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
Serve with some homemade cornbread muffins or tortilla chips.
